Whitney Unveil New Single ‘For a While’

    Whitney have shared a new track, ‘For a While’, alongside an accompanying visual. The song, originally known as ‘Rolling Blackouts’, was a staple in the Chicago band’s live shows around the release of their 2016 debut Light Upon the Lake, but Julien Ehrlich and Max Kakacek didn’t finish writing and recording it until last year. Check it out and find their upcoming tour dates below.

    “The lyrics of ‘For a While’ were inspired by a time Max and I drove past a burning car on the side of the highway in Northern Illinois,” Ehrlich explained in a statement. “From what we could see everyone made it out safely, but in that moment we were both struck by the ubiquity of anonymous tragedy. Over the course of writing ‘For a While’ that experience evolved into a feeling of gratitude and love for all the people who aren’t able to be with us today. We’ve been working on this song for a few years and a few different phases of our lives. It’s seen some people come and go. We love you all.”

    Whitney released their third album, SPARK, last year via Secretly Canadian.
